Austin and Albuquerque have more in common than both starting with the letter ‘A’. Both cool places to live, filled with artists and university students. Both named after historical figures, namely Stephen F Austin and the 8th Duke of Albuquerque, a Spanish nobleman. Both hosting Must-See events like Austin’s SXSW and Albuqueque’s balloon festival. Now we must add another similarity to the list: home to DOUG DONAHOO. Mr. D is leaving Hearst’s KOAT in Albuquerque where he’s been for the last several years and heading to FOX in Austin. Doug’s a Kansas guy and a Jayhawk through and through, so it will be an adventure living where Longhorns rule. Big Well Dunne! to you Doug.
Kudos to SHANNON DRIVER who is now Senior Vice President of Network Marketing and Creative Services for HGTV, DIY Network and Great American Country. Well Dunne!
A bit of confusion on what day precisely is International Coffee Day. Google and its many sources have it listed as today (if you read this the last day of September 2015) or October 1. Of course it’s a PR move – this one by the London-based International Coffee Organization, a UN entity – but a very nice one indeed – especially if they can nail down the date. On tap for the day is a focus on international fair trade coffee as well as discounts and perhaps even free cups. Plan accordingly and celebrate coffee both days.

Think About This: "May the sun bring you new energy by day. May the moon softly restore you by night.. May the rain wash away your worries. May the breeze blow new strength into your being. May you walk gently through the world and know it’s beauty all the days of your life.” ~ Apache blessing
